Re: What is the Phoenix Eye Fist?
In our lineage there is mainly only the standard vertical fist and a couple of different palm strikes and forearm strikes .
I remember reading about some one asked Sigung about this lack of variety in punch formations and he said he didn't need them because no one has ever been able to block his punch or palm strike and just the punch or palm strike were quite sufficient for the job.
"Opponent attacks, absorb and neutralise blow. Opponent withdraws, pursue and counter. Dis-engage restriction from arms, retaliate with penetrating thrust."
